Irish law firm adopts artificial intelligence platform

McCann FitzGerald and Neota Logic have joined forces to create AI-driven legal services solutions.


One of Dublin's top law firms, McCann FitzGerald, has entered into an agreement to design and market applications to help the firm's clients to reduce the time and cost of legal work. The deal is with Neota Logic, creators of a leading artificial intelligence (AI)-driven platform for the intelligent automation of expertise, documents, and business processes.  The contract, which marks the first time that Neota Logic has been deployed in Ireland, provides McCann FitzGerald access to Neota Logic's technology as well as training and services. 


'As a law firm on the cutting edge of legal services delivery, we're always striving to find progressive new ways to have a positive impact on our clients' business,' said Barry Devereux, managing partner of McCann FitzGerald. 'Neota Logic's technology is appealing because of its impressive track record for helping law firms to innovate and evolve the way they deliver services cost efficiently, yet without compromising legal advice accuracy and quality.'

Reduce cost

'We look forward to working with McCann FitzGerald as they look for ways to apply AI and other technology to innovate how they collaborate with clients to reduce legal risk and cost. It's also exciting to be part of the team pioneering the use of AI for legal services in Ireland,' said Greg Wildisen, international managing director, Neota Logic.
